Poverty 101: Teaching about poverty and inequality

I was lucky to participate in the first Institute for Research on Poverty Workshop on Poverty 101 this past summer in Madison, Wisconsin. The gathering featured a number of world-class speakers presenting the latest information on understanding poverty. Participants were from a diverse range of fields. I brought back a number of new ideas and connections to inform both my research and teaching. Announcement is below
